How to Tell if Your AC is in Need of Emergency Repair

October 13, 2017

Your air conditioner is key to keeping you comfortable throughout the warmer Hudsonville days. If your system breaks down, it can really influence your comfort! So, how do you recognize when you may need an AC repair? Sometimes your air conditioner will show symptoms that it needs to be looked at before it breaks down completely. Watch for any of the following symptoms and give West Michigan Heating & Air Conditioning Services a call if you suspect your AC is on the fritz.

If you observe a lack of cooled air or decreased airflow, this is a definite sign that something isn’t right. Give the professionals at West Michigan Heating & Air Conditioning Services a call if your house doesn’t seem to cool down or if it won’t keep cool. When your air conditioner can’t keep up with your cool-air needs any longer, there’s probably a problem. Whether it’s running low on Freon, having problems with its condenser, or there’s an issue with your ductwork, our professionals can provide support.

Overall, if your air conditioner becomes noisy, there’s probably a problem that needs AC repair. If you hear squealing or grinding sounds, call us. You shouldn’t hear loud sounds from a properly operating AC outside of the sound of your fan turning on or shutting off. AC problems that create abnormal sounds indicate a potential breakdown.

If you see a leak from your AC, call us for an AC repair immediately. A condensation leak carries less of a health risk, but it’s wise to get it repaired before there is a bigger problem, like mold growth.

Bad or unfamiliar odors coming from your registers indicate your system needs to be checked out.

If you suspect you’re in need of an AC repair from any of these indicators, give West Michigan Heating & Air Conditioning Services a call at (616) 669-3961 and we can help. If your AC is working as it should, but it’s overdue for a routine maintenance visit, we suggest you call to set one up. It could save you from pricey, larger repairs down the line. We look forward to serving you.
